HND Giveaway: JU-ON: THE GRUDGE for Wii

Everyone likes free stuff and everyone wants free stuff and I happen to have some free stuff that I can give away, but not to everyone.  If you’d like the sole copy of JU-ON: THE GRUDGE I have to offer, navigate your little clickercontraption up to the top right corner of this screen and click […]

RESIDENT EVIL – UMBRELLA CHRONICLES (Wii) Review. [Best Rail-Gun Shooter for the Wii]

RESIDENT EVIL: UMBRELLA CHRONICLES Developed and Produced by Capcom, 2007 Being the fanboy I am of the RESIDENT EVIL series, I never learned my lesson with the previously released gun-games (RESIDENT EVIL:SURVIVOR & RESIDENT EVIL: DEAD AIM) and so I went ahead and bought the series omnibus spectacular, RE: UMBRELLA CHRONICLES. As for the story, […]

CONDEMNED – CRIMINAL ORIGINS (PC), Review.

Condemned: Criminal Origins Developed By: Monolith Productions Produced By: SEGA When CONDEMNED: CRIMINAL ORIGINS was first released I felt a sense of unease, it just didn’t sit right with me. It looked impressive enough but the blend of realism mixed with the supernatural just didn’t seem to connect. I tried not to let this prejudiced […]

BioShock (Video Game) Review

Bioshock Developed By: 2K Games Published By: 2K Games “Welcome to Rapture” Never before have I seen a tagline to anything emanate more truth than BIOSHOCK’s. Rapture, an underwater city of the genetically damned with a chilling sensation that never relents with every single crafted item enforces the sensation and I mean everything. BIOSHOCK may […]

Review: The Conduit (Video Game)

The Conduit Developer(s) High Voltage Software Publisher(s) Sega It’s the game Wii owners have been salivating for since E3 2008, proudly boasting that THE CONDUIT is the best first-person shooter for the Wii and will pave the way for future games utilizing what they have accomplished. It’s a pretty big claim and for better or […]

Review: F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (Video Game)

F.E.A.R. 2: PROJECT ORIGIN Developed by Monolith Productions Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Being a fan of the original F.E.A.R. (and to a lesser extent, the two non-canon expansions) I was fairly excited for this sequel. The original F.E.A.R. accomplished a lot in terms of the tech, combat, and the level of terror, which […]

Did you know ANTICHRIST has a Game in the Works?

I must have missed that press release at E3. Unfortunately I had the ending to Lars von Triers‘ Willem Dafoe starring shocker ANTICHRIST spoiled for me thanks to a headline at Drudge Report (not unlike the ending to INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, which makes me wonder why I even read Matt Drudge any more), but even without […]

I Want: ARhrrr! Augmented Reality Zombie Shooter!

[Via Kotaku] Are you familiar with Augmented Reality, the real-time blending of computer generated graphics and an object in the real world?  Well a group of researches at  Georgia Tech have finally taken the field, which to date has been dominated by advertisers, to its logical conclusion: shooting zombies from a helicopter! Unfortunately it looks […]

Horror Brings the Ruckus to E3.

There was quite a bit of Horror infused in E3 this year, impressing myself and horror fans in general more than I think anyone expected.  Personally, E3 had pretty much everything I wanted: New game announcements, trailers/gameplay footage of games I’ve been following and even one or two surprises. Videos and highlights follow: LEFT 4 […]

Review: Lux Pain (Video Game)

Lux Pain Developed by Killaware Published by Ignition Entertainment Lux Pain is one of those games with a hollowed out and rotten trunk that has some fairly interesting aspects branch off. Unfortunately, it’s not bugs and execution that bog Lux Pain down; it is the simple fact that Lux should have not been a game; […]

This is what LEFT 4 DEAD on the 360 is Missing.

Valve finally released the Software Development Kit for LEFT 4 DEAD for the PC.  Those who spend their time on consoles will not pop undead wood at such news, as an SDK is meaningless to them, but us PC’ers know the holy grail that is user mods. For the uninitiated, the SDK is a kit […]

I Will Shit My Pants Playing This Game.

…if I had a Wii, of course.  This video from Kotaku shows gameplay highlights from FEEL, the game adaptation of JU-ON for which Takahashi Shimizu is serving as a directorial consultant.  I’ve got no place to say whether or not survival horror has gone stale these days as I’ll admit to rarely playing it, however, […]

Oh, Japan!

GUEST REVIEW: RESIDENT EVIL 5 (XBOX 360/PS3)

Published and Developed by Capcom, 2009 It has been about four years since the near-masterpiece RESIDENT EVIL 4 hit shelves and changed the series and the entire survival horror genre (for better or worse).  Leaps and bounds were made in terms of combat and pacing, replacing most of the puzzles and backtracking with faster paced […]

Review: LEFT 4 DEAD (PC) – Peter’s Take

Published by Valve, 2008 I realize there has been dearth of horror movie reviews on this site of late.  I could blame the onset of winter months, which are the weakest weeks of the year as far as horror is concerned, but that would be a scapegoat.  I was out of the country for a […]

REVIEW – LEFT 4 DEAD (PC) – Matt’s Take

LEFT 4 DEAD Produced and Developed by Valve Corporation Given my recent reviews and trailer impressions, it seems only fitting a zombie apocalypse game should come around that I get to review. Being a PC gamer, there is some bias in favor of Valve and everything they make. Ask any PC Gamer and they will […]

Review – Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (Video Game)

Published and Developed by Capcom. 2005 I can remember when I first saw the E3 videos for RESIDENT EVIL 4. Leon Kennedy was walking in a mansion when a humanoid apparition appeared before him, chasing him out of the room. While the first videos had their freaky moments, I still sighed. The concept of ghosts […]

Trailer Impressions: RE:WII, LEFT 4 DEAD, A VAMPIRE STORY, HOUSE OF THE DEAD, FEAR 2 and More

A couple of horror game trailers and clips have hit the scene in the last week, here are my thoughts: RESIDENT EVIL – Wii Port First up we have the new trailer for the (so far) Japan only release of the RESIDENT EVIL remake. It shows a trailer, which shows off nothing that we haven’t […]

First Impression: SPLATTERHOUSE (Game)

The first trailer for Splatterhouse has arrived: I must admit, the trailer reminds me of HOSTEL and that does not bode well.   Although the graphics sure look uninspired, there isn’t too much to praise or condemn. With no real gameplay or features shown, it is more of a teaser than anything. In the end it’s […]

Review: Dead Rising (Video Game)

Developed and produced by Capcom 2006. I have a confession.  If a game has zombies, odds are I am going to like it. If the game gives me the opportunity to shoot said zombies, odds are I am going to love it.  Thus I am lucky that Capcom loves killing zombies as much as I […]

Holy Awesome, CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR has zombie Nazis!

GameTrailers got the scoop this week that after beating the campaign mode of CALL OF DUTY: WORLD AT WAR, the latest in the World War II FPS series out November 11th, you will unlock a multiplayer co-op mode in which up to four players will have to defend a derelict farm house from wave after […]

HND Talks to Craig Hubbard, Principal Game Designer of F.E.A.R. 2: PROJECT ORIGIN

HND was recently given the opportunity to exchange some questions with the driving force behind F.E.A.R. 2: PROJECT ORIGIN, the few months away multi-platform sequel to hit first person shooter F.E.A.R. I think the Q&A session went well, to be honest.  It is the first of its kind on the site and I’d like to […]

Intro: New Face to the HorrorsNotDead.com Brood

I write this to everyone to say “Hi”. I’m Matt Wells and I’ll be covering a large portion of the new horror/sci-fi game section of HorrorsNotDead.com. I’ve been a reader and comment-contributor for almost three years, brought to it when a friend from Longwood heard me talk about several horror movies and he knew Peter, […]

Reviews: DEAD SPACE (Video Game)

No, that is not a typo in the title, for the first time ever HND has multiple reviews for the same item.  Today we talk DEAD SPACE, a survival horror video game on 360, PS3 and PC from Electronic Arts.  I’ve always wanted to have multiple perspectives on the same thing run at the same […]

Behold, the first three days of the Tokyo Game Show expo as they pertain to us.

And with this post HorrorsNotDead.com now officially covers games.  Expect even more coverage in the future.  As most should know, I am an avid gamer, but as it turns out HND reader Matt Wells is an even bigger gamer and has a knack for writing about the booming field.  He has corralled the important horror […]
